Hi All,

I think I have the near-perfect xhtml-css now (well not suggesting my design is something special - just that it always looks pretty much the same on all 5+ browsers on mac, win and redhat)

So have a look at this page:
http://www.ameinfo.com/metime/
(have not rollled it our thoughout the site just yet)

Let me know if there is anything I have overlooked, something that can break it or something I can do different/better/smarter/shorter...

Looking forward to your comments...

Happy 2005 - and thanks for your help so far Smile

Klaus

CSS doesn't validate.

Hi,

Yes one error - I can't make the hack4mac validate - display:inline-block; is a CSS2.1 working-document property that happens to have gotten an early implemention in IE - so in the near future it should validate.

When I tried using conditional comments for IE - Mac ignores it sadly and I have yet to find a way that target Mac IE and validates Sad

Thanks for your feedback
Klaus

Hi Klaus,

Is there any reason why you have left out Israel in the time zones on your site?

It looks a nice site and I could also find it very useful as I live in Jerusalem Israel and have friends all over the world.

I would really appreciate your answer,

All the best, Naty

klaus - does IE - Mac ignore conditional comments? or the specific code? Depending on the answer there are different approaches to take.

Hi David,

Mac IE igonores the conditional comment and hence also the code inside the .. I used:

<!--[if IE]>
<style>
.clearfix{display: inline-block;}
</style>
<![endif]-->

In the <head> area...

Cheers

See http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum83/2627.htm for a method to taget IE/Mac specifically. The article says it validates but the [url=http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?text=%0D%0A%5C%2F*%0D%0A%40import%28%22stylesheet.css%22%29%3B%0D%0A*%2F%0D%0A&usermedium=all]current validator gives a parse error[/url]. Has anyone else seen this technique used successfully (and validate)?

Hi David,

Yes I tried that one too - get validator syntax error..

Guess I have to live with one error until they update the validator..
